Do you think that I make 4,2 mln with date 05/09 Phil?

He doesn't think that you made it on 05/09. He simply doesn't know when you made it.

Ok. But rule 24h must be changed. It have no sense. Each can set date in computer.

No, but I would if I wanted to compete in a MARP tournament.

Nobody says that you cheated but look at it from Phil's perspective: If he didn't enforce the rule it would be useless.

and by 1 stupid rule the huge score is down - CRAP :(

The rule is not stupid. It puts much more fun in the competition. If the rule wasn't there and everybody upped their recordings 5 minutes before the end of each week it would be pretty boring during the week.

He was furious and layed on the track in protest for nearly an hour, in the end he had to accept it but the race was called off.


I was in the stadium ;
these new false start rule is maybe almost stupid than 24h rule, but we need rules, and after they need to be applied, even for Drummond or anyone else ;

Stupid rule 24 h. In this situation each can change date in system and play with end date. Do you think that I make 4,2 mln with date 05/09 Phil?

I play for fun and win not for gold and money.


If you play for fun, why wait the last moment to upload ?
why share technics instead of hide them ?

stupid 24h rule was first made to avoid behaviour like yours (1 upload at last moment) ;
it can be cheated but for the moment we haven't better

Why playing simply like other players : upload each time you improve your hiscore ?
This is the spirit of WCC ... no rules can really define it I know

You're not out of WCC, and not even out of week 3 : why don't you do what I ask you ?
1-edit your score and change shortname to "deleted" ; your previous inp will appear and I will be able to check both date and score
2-reupload the actual score after that (when I'll finish)

the whole situation is our fault but :(
there must be some chaos when polish players are around (told u des 2 much alcohol :) )
It's good 2 be here with U guys :)

gee, perhaps you should have submitted a recording earlier just to make sure you had something there, instead of waiting til the last minute.

I mean come on Destructor, you're an amazing player and everything. But being so paranoid about hiding the 80k point trick? (which people figured out on their own anyway) The best player should be able to win even if the "tricks" are made common knowledge.

Imagine what would have happened in T6 if I never posted the link to Alan Kwan's Psychic 5 page? Exactly. This is all in good fun, and the competition is more fun when you see people continually improve your scores in the battle for 1st. It's not fun to just have people submit one recording in the last couple hours.

Maybe you are right BBH.
But I want get first place in round 3. I played each 6 days from hour 11 morning to 2 at night (morning next day :) ) = 13 hours, last day I play only 10 hours. Now I have 0 points.
I don't know hour and day check my inp by Phil. If this time was about 2 hours before end of round I have chance to make score to 1st with correct date(for me no problem make 3,5 - 4 mln in 2 hour) . But I don't check MARP scores after submit my score, I go sleep after hard week. I record more inps with score over 4 millions (this submited is highest), but all with wrong date, because I record inps in 2 last days (thursday and friday) on this computer with wrong date(early I don't record inps, I only train (on my old computer) because I get computer at wednesday from service).
Rule 24 broken. OK. But broken only in inp note because I know that I and asn and wuzel record inps at friday 12 september.

who figured out the 80k bonus?? show me bbh
we figured it out on the next day of round 3 and we only during the week were improving it
post it at second day (saturday or sunday) with a score about 1,6 at half of story 2 and while (speaking about myslef) being very short with time the other days and U ( I) dead :(
everyone can mad a better score using this technique - lets say that desangre had 1,3 mln after the first boss and then his score is about 3.2 - and it biiger then mine.
thats mine point
It's good 2 be here with U guys :)

Ok guys.. stop the whining, and just ACCEPT Phils decision. He is the boss, and he set the rules. Sometimes things seems unfair, but HE is the man that decide things. Like it or not.
